Add Some Mediterranean Flair
Terracotta planters are a versatile and inexpensive way to house your favorite plants. However, their plain facade can be less than inspiring. Applying a mosaic finish will ensure you have a one of a kind planter, and will allow you to channel your inner Greek, by smashing some plates to create the mosaic.
All you need is some craft mastic, grout and unwanted tableware—be sure to check local thrift shops and garage sales for one-off pieces with attractive designs and colors. Remember to don protective glasses and gloves and smash away with a mallet to create varied pieces of mosaic. Terracotta planters can become quite heavy, however, so be sure to use our tips for moving heavy potted plants.
